Changing Like the Seasons

My house is a mess. A half-boxed, half-strewn about mess. My husband and I are moving on Friday into a house of our very own! Well, after 30 years of payments, it will be, but at least we can paint the walls. One perk about my new house is its location – about 10 minutes …

Pleated Skirt {Day 7 of 31 Days of Fall Fashion}

Pleats may remind you of your schoolgirl days, but they’re still on the runway this season, as shown by Bottega Veneta. Even if you don’t own one anymore, you can probably find one at a thrift store since they’ve been back in style for several seasons. Try wearing it with a fuzzy sweater or, if that …

Metallics {Day 6 of 31 Days of Fall Fashion}

Brands like Balmain are bringing us some shine and sparkle in time for the holidays. Besides traditional gold and silver, you can search your wardrobe for metallic jewel colors, like ruby, emerald, and sapphire. While you’re thinking about it, why not add some precious jewels to your Christmas list? I wore my gold thrifted sweater …

Black and White Blocking {Day 5 of 31 Days of Fall Fashion}

Black and white blocking

I don’t typically wear black. This “color” seems to be a staple in many wardrobes, but white fits my personality better, and it’s the main neutral that I wear. When trends like black and white blocking come around, though, as seen on the Balenciaga runway this season, I have a few black pieces of clothing …

Flirty Shoes {Day 4 of 31 Days of Fall Fashion}

black ruffle flats

Give your feet some love this season with a pair of flirty shoes. Check out these shoes on the Badgley Mischka runway. A little ruffle, a little bow, a little heel – you decide what’s flirty to you. My definition resides in black flats with ribbons, ruffles, and bows across the front that took me …

Gray Knits {Day 3 of 31 Days of Fall Fashion}

Gray sweater

Must. Have. These. Mittens. Obviously my first thought upon seeing this outfit by Alexander Wang. As these mittens are not in my closet (at least until I fix my sewing machine), we’ll focus on the fuzzy gray knits. I wish I could touch them, and the furry mittens, and the soft wool through my computer …

High Ruffled Neckline {Day 2 of 31 Days of Fall Fashion}

High ruffled neckline

The high ruffled neckline trend came to my attention when I saw the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection for Fall 2012 – see this dress. I adored the purple color, but I also liked the quirkiness of the neckline. The clothes on Alexander McQueen’s runway this season are stunning even if they aren’t immediately relevant …

Ruffles and Lace {Day 1 of 31 Days of Fall Fashion}

Because my fashion sense tends toward a romantic style, I enjoyed seeing ruffles and lace on the runway, like this dress by Alberta Ferretti. The runway looks inspired me to put together a ruffled dress that I bought at New York & Company and a Charlotte Russe lace top that my fashionista friend gave to …

31 Days of Fall Fashion

What do you like about fall fashion? I especially like the fabrics that are uncommon during the warmer months. Velvet, tweed, and fur make my heart skip a beat. Runway fashion inspires me. In their own unique ways, designers make clothes look like pieces of art. By browsing through runway pictures, I discover new ways …

Five Steps to a Focused Style

For years, I had a mismatch of clothes in my closet. I shopped sporadically and picked up an item here and a couple others there, with the end result being a collection of tops I couldn’t wear with any of the bottoms, and a collection of bottoms I couldn’t wear with any of the shoes. …
